This section has the description and repair procedures
for the differential, speed reducer, drive axle, wheel
bearings, and the mounts for the axle housing.
The mount brackets for the drive axle housing are
fastened to the frame of the lift truck with six bolts on
the E/J1.25–1.75XL (E25–35XL) models and eight
E2.00–3.20XM (E45–65XM), J2.00–3.00 (J40–60XL)
and the N30XMH models. The outer ends of the axle
housings are the spindles for the wheel bearings. The
cups for the tapered roller bearings for the wheel
bearings are pressed into the wheel hubs. The nut on the
end of the spindle holds and adjusts the preload on the
wheel bearings. The axle shafts are fastened to the hubs
by capscrews. Studs and nuts fasten the wheel to the hub
and brake drum. The back plate and brake assemblies
are fastened to the mount brackets for the axle housing.
The transmission and differential are a single assembly.
(See FIGURE 6.) The transmission has a speed reducer
gear that engages the splines on the shaft of the traction
motor. A second speed reducer gear is fastened to the
pinion shaft for the differential.
There are three configurations of drive wheel mounts
used on the E/J1.25–1.75XL (E25–35XL) series of lift
trucks because of the variations in tires that are
standard solid tires
wide tread solid tires
solid tires shaped like pneumatic tires
(The pneumatic tires are available in standard and wide
tread configurations, but the mount to the drive axle is
The methods used to fasten the drive wheels to the hub
are different for the three configurations. See
FIGURE 3. When the drive axle is disassembled or
assembled, small changes in the procedure must be
made for the differences in the axles.
The lift truck must be put on blocks for some
types of maintena
